This LAMY Joy fountain pen has a long tapered black resin body with a red clip, and an interchangeable silver stub italic steel nib. It comes with a LAMY ink cartridge, or it also accepts a LAMY Z28 converter to use bottled ink (sold separately). The triangular grip is helpful for proper hand/grip position while writing.
Note: To ensure quality performance, LAMY tests their pens as a final step in manufacturing. If you happen to see any residual blue ink, rest assured that this is normal.
